Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I want to go back to windows but I cannot get it going after installing it at least ten times over. please please help... I tried to install a free linux mandrake from the pc plus mag. reply quick please.
Originally posted by DoubleLetter if we type in fdisk /mbr we can overwrite the grub, ok. But how do we ENSURE a perfect dual boot of windows[any version] and RH 7.1 linux ??
i get that perfect dual boot by installing windows first, then installing redhat using lilo installed on the mbr. it has never failed me as of yet.
redhat has never given me any problems with 95/98 but 2000 takes a little more configruation. never installed ME, and i don't think i am going to ever.
